  1. Time for the next project, and one with a bit of an overblown name. With that sort of name you'd expect some hugely overpowered convertible, maybe some sort of uprated Corvette. What you actually get with the Chevy SSR is a retro-styled convertible pick-up. This will be my first commercial vehicle (in the very loosest sense of the word) but don't expect me to do a weathered example - as with the rest of my display it will look qutie clean unless I make a real pig's ear of it. So, on with progress to date. I should say that so far it's just been spraying which I did over summer and
  2. Normally when I put up a WIP thread I start with a fully painted body because I actually started the car yonks before. This year, I decided to go through the body as it's done. And with warm weather last weekend I was able to get an quick layer of primer on this one, not to mention priming the chassis. The kit is Hasegawa's Jaguar XJS which was done a couple of years ago to an extremely high standard by Matt Bacon. I hope I can even halfway to that, although I don't feel I can face wiring up that V12. Initial impression of the kit is that it looks very detailed and hopefully high q
  3. Resurrection time...... I had coveted this since first seeing it in Beatties Birmingham when I was 13 - 40 years later I brought one on eBay as my get back into modelling project spent 2 months building then got distracted and shelved it - 5 months later and the cat decided he didn’t like it on the shelf so sent it to the floor - it’s sat there now for 15 more months dejected and unloved - it’s time has come though and it’s now back on the workbench first job was to repair the cat damage which got me back to this Over the last couple of weeks I’ve
  4. These were kits that I didn't realise existed this time last year. They are also the first kits I have started and finished this year, less than four weeks from first post to final photos. Over the summer I was quite excited when I found the Abarth kit on eBay from a European seller at quite a reasonable price. As an aside it seems European sellers are quite often cheaper than British ones, sometimes enough to cancel out the more expensive postage costs. It wasn't until December or January that I saw a standard 500 kit come up on eBay (with a slightly silly buy-it-now price and
  5. This one was finished in the recent 'KUTA XIII' GB but I've only just got around to posting an RFI... The latter stages of the build are here if you want to see it coming together. Work on this model began years ago, long before I joined BM, so the early stages were not recorded. You won't miss much, as it was built to a very basic standard! Normally I would ask for critique on a model, but not this time! This one is full of silly mistakes and areas that could have been built better. Even my recent work, which really should have been to a higher standard, was frequentl
  6. It’s been a little while since I posted a build. It’s very easy to get distracted by life in general, but always nice to open a box & start a new build. I quite fancied building a very early car & this fits the bill: lots of parts. Nothing in the way of a main body shell and white rubber tires. I think it will be hard to stay away from painting it all black
  7. I started this one a few years ago, after picking it up from a Debenham's sale for about £30. Here's the obligatory box top shot: Progress stalled for some reason - I think I was getting fed up with all the filling and sanding! Here's the current state of play: It's a big beast - I think it's a Series 18 kit... I'm not sure if Airfix produced anything bigger than this one? Despite the size, the build standard is not as high as it could be (my techniques have improved quite a bit in the past two years!) I will try to impr
  8. Hi All, I don't seem to to have created a thread for this one, so I decided to do it now: This is the exquisite Tamiya Ford GT model: So far, I have assembled the main parts of the body, and this is where I have got so far: I have to share my work-space with various stored items not immediately needed... The fit of the body was superb, with join lines matching the panel lines on the real thing as far as I can tell. I have done more than this, but I have no photos yet. Thanks for looking. C
  9. So, seeing as the lockdown and social isolation continues, i thought i would grab another box down off the shelf to occupy my evenings. As the titla and tags suggest it is the Subaru Impreza Sports Wagon WRX in 1/24 from Hasegawa. A nice little curbside kit that should go together well. The mouldings lok crisp with minimal cleanup looking to be required. There are a few parts in the box not required as it looks like some Impreza sprues with the Wagon stuff added on top, so the kit bash spares box continues to grow. Included are some window masks for the clea
  10. Build number one ready to go, a Renault Vivastella (1981) - brought this off eBay last year as part of a “bogof” package - this was brand new the freeby was a Heller Citroen Trefle that had been started badly and had warped runners. Hoping it turns out as well as the Trefle
  11. So her is my first WIP post, this will be the 3rd model i have built and the 1st 1/24th, the first two were 1/20th F1 cars. I thought this would be a nice change and a bit of a challenge with the photoetch parts i have started the engine and gearbox and also tried some of the photoetch parts while waiting for things to dry. More to come this weekend im sure
  12. Hello all, Finally got this over the line before the end of 2020, but I have only just uploaded the pictures. Here we go: Painted with Zero Paints Mica Red. 'Chrome' details picked out with the wonderful Molotow Chrome pen. An enjoyable build of an iconic motor. There are a few minor issues that I hope to address in future builds. Also, I need a proper photo background to make my images pop! Due to inadequate lighting, I had to use a wide aperture, resulting in a shallow depth of field. I'll call it '
  13. Hi everyone I just wanted to share my thoughts and progress using the Cricut Explorer Air 2. I received my Cricut last Wednesday, my wife brought it for me for my 50th birthday (thank you Leanne). Now I'm a bit of a luddite when it comes to technology and I'm incredibly lazy I just want things to work with out any messing around but to my surprise the Cricut is very easy to use and I think the masks that you can make are as good as any commercially produced items. I started by looking for any additional software that you might need to use for designing and produci

  15. Hi All, I must be a sucker for punishment. Yet another model that I have decided to finish along with all the others. This one has for no reason that I can work out, been sitting on the back-shelf for an enormously long time. I had built the engine, transmission & exhaust and had sprayed all the body parts in their final colour, then I put it away and forgot about it. This is the Revell 'Premium' range of 1/24th kits. There weren't many models in this series, This, a BMW 850 a Mercedes 560 C, coupe and cabriolet. I has many more parts than your usual Revell kit, an
  16. Having started back in the first lockdown (if you call spraying starting), I've reached the end of building Tamiya's Jag XJ220. The kit might well date back almost 30 years (to 1993), but it's a good detailed kit which (mostly!) goes together very well. There were a few issues towards the end, but I can't guarantee that they are the fault of Tamiya rather than the fault of the builder. If anyone is looking for an XJ220, this one is well worth getting, although they do seem to have gone up massively in price since I got this one. Onto the model, and decided to go with the usual silv
  17. After a week away, today I got a start on the next project. Well, I say a start, but I've done the spraying of the body coloured bits and some of the bigger satin black parts over summer so technically I started this way back when we were all locked down. Although the kit is getting on a bit now, first impressions are that it's a good, well engineered and detailed kit (actually first impression is that the car is massive, which at least is realistic) with quite a bit to keep me occupied, despite being close to 30 years old now. I've only seen these cars in the flesh in two colours, dark metall
  18. Now i have a special. It ist a model in 1/24 from the series „Ghost in the Shell“. Concrete from the serie „Ghost in The Shell: S.A.C. 2nd GIG“. It isto long and to mutch to elaborate on that here, and my english is not good enought for this. But you can all infos found in the WWW. This model is from Wave and i had lucky to got it for a good preis. The man is Batou, a verry important person at the series. He is wearing a Combat uniform. The Roboter is a „Tank“, but with higher KI, it's a Uchikoma. It can walk, drive, jump.... and also a human can in the box at the backside ride
  19. Hello fellows, Let me show my WIP - The Citroën Fourgon Type H 1/24 from Heller. I was hooked with this model, after seeing the awesome work made by MBdesignart in Britmodeller, and his choice as a Guiness Van. So, I decided to make the same subjet...I grab the model in a store in Barcelona (24 Euros), and ordered the decals to Motobitz. In few days the decals arrived at home... Let's start with some pics. Your comments will be appreciate!
  20. I originally started this build way back when in the Nordic GB, in a time before lockdown! Original thread here. One of three unfinished GBs this year I'm hoping to get finished (alongside the ongoing ones and Interceptor GB I want to start!) I've slowly been making progress mistakes since, and here are a few pics, it's been a bit of a pig getting together. Underside all built up - I did unfortunately snap one of the suspension components (anti-roll bar?). Interior is mainly built up. The kit came with some (very thin) plastic material to use
  21. Hello everybody, Here the Citroën Fourgon Type H, "Guiness" (Heller, 1/24). It took me three months to built it (but working only a cupole of hours in the weekeend.. The model is fun, and improves a lot with the Motobitz decals. Apart from some fit issues, I only have a little complaint about the Heller instruction manual; in my opinon is no good. I hope you like it, and also I'm looking forward for your comments....
  22. Long, long ago, well 1974, I bought the 1/24 Airfix Harrier kit when it appeared, Inspired by a conversion article by Alan Hall and Mike Keep, "Updating the Harrier" on pages 118 to 123 of a magazine I no longer seem to have, I started work. As with may kits I purchased when at Brunel my modelling went into hibernation when i started work in 1975 and then found a wife in 1977...and bought a house...then Airfix in 1997 issued big Harrier as the GR3. My conversion continued its hibernation. Time passed and I thought that it would be a good project to finish, so earlier this ye
  23. Just finished this one eventually after having it half built on the shelf for months concentrating on the other WW2 diorama, Very happy with the end result though Fujimi garage accessories, and Aoshima 1/24 scale MGB
  24. The box arrived at 16:00. First impressions.... 1. A big box packed with a lot of plastic...600 parts they say. 2. VERY fine detailing, moulding flawless, reasonable length runners, even on the smallest of parts. 3. I cannot see any short shot parts. The instructions have you start with the cockpit. I'm still thinking about the best way to do the instruments. Airfix provide separate instrument transfers to apply to the back of a clear panel and then fix the front over. Confusingly they offer 3 instrument panels, R3 and R4, but no where I can see do they link
  25. Hi all calling this all finished, the base is a cake board cut down slightly and covered in cork sheet, the dead trees are from an aquatic eBay store that's been painted with 502 oils and the sandy earth was a layer of war gaming sand and Flory pigments, all held in place with Hataka orange top semi matt clear lacquer. The interceptor car is an out of the box build, painted in Mr Hobby Color dark iron 214. This colour gave the car a nice flat sun bleached effect. I had a lot of fun building this diorama, I hope you like the final reveal guys.
